Chances are you have exhausted your mind trying to choose the perfect diet and exhausted your body from trying it.
And here you are still the same old you, no weight loss and maybe even a few extra pounds.
So, what’s the deal?
1. The science behind weight loss
Well if I told it’s as simple as calories in versus calories out, meaning eat less and move more, chances are you wouldn’t believe it would be that simple.
But imagine your car, if you put fuel into it and don’t use it for a month, the fuel will still be there. However, if you drive it every day, it will run out quickly.
Your body is the same but it can also store that fuel in the form of fat and if you use less energy than you eat, it will store the rest as fat.
If you use all the energy you eat, you will keep the same weight and if you use more energy than you eat, you will have to use the fat you have stored.
So if you want to make sure the next time set weight loss goal it doesn’t fall flat it’s best to understand these principles:
